A short ‘to-do’ list to get you started:

It is critical for you to sign up for this service. It is also very easy to do.Just click here: CHS Dance Parent Council (Note: if you were on the list last year, you do not need to sign up again.)
  • Pay the $250 Arts Fee. (Note: this is an annual fee. All returning students are asked to pay it each year.) The Dance Program is solely funded through each student’s Arts Canterbury Upgrade Charge of $250.

The Dance Program uses these funds to hire live accompaniment for the dancers during their classes, attend events, field trips, host workshops, as well as many other activities for the dancers.  If you have not yet paid these fees it can be done online through https://ocsb.schoolcashonline.com
